We are honoured to announce that we are the official sponsors of this year’s Colour Blast Dash happening on 29th April 2018 at Victoria Park in Leicester, which raises money for The Laura Centre.

More about The Laura Centre

The Laura Centre truly does amazing work and it’s great that we can do our bit and support such a wonderful organisation.

Opened in 1991 by the bereavement charity COPE, The Laura Centre offers specialist bereavement counselling to parents who have lost a child and to children or young people who have been bereaved of a parent or significant person.

The Laura Centre has 3 centres in the east midlands including Leicester, Derby and Coventry. Each centre offers individual and group support, as well as a variety of alternative therapies.

Paint, race, party…

The Colour Blast Dash is a race with a colourful and fun twist. Those who sign up should prepare to have the messiest fun they’ve ever had during a Sunday morning run.

It’s up to you; either walk, run or moonwalk around one of our courses (either 2.5K or 5K) and you will be ‘blasted’ with coloured powder. You’ll cross the finish line splattered with all the colours of the rainbow and of course a huge beaming smile.

See, we said it would be the messiest fun you’ve had during a run!
